The Aomori Museum of Art was established with the purpose of promoting the arts of Northern Tohoku region. The adjacent excavation site, Sannai-Maruyama Historical Site, became the inspiration for its architecture. The permanent collection features three of four backdrops of the ballet Aleko painted by Master Marc Chagall. The scale of the exhibition hall is of breathtaking magnitude. The museum holds a wide array of artifacts from Japanese paintings to western paintings, as well as modern art pieces.

Introducing the Arts of Aomori to the World

Since opening in 2006, the Aomori Museum of Art with its goal of introducing the arts of Aomori to the world has collected and exhibited works from Aomori native artists such as Shiko Munakata, Shuji Terayama, Yoshitomo Nara, and Toru Narita. The Aomori Dog by Yoshimoto Nara has become the museum’s iconic symbol.
